WHAT GOES ON WHEN YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES?

(Moneyish.com) Sleeping is more complicated than you think. When you drift off to catch some Zzzs, your brain goes through different, critical phases of activity. But like millions of adults with occasional sleeplessness, your plate may also be too full with professional and family pressures and to-do lists to de-stress, stay asleep and relax into each phase. To wake feeling refreshed, you need to go through all the phases of sleep repeatedly each night (especially stage three, as you'll soon find out). To make that happen, consider turning to sleep aids to help you reach stage three - and beyond.

Stage One: You're Still Alert
The first light phase of sleep is when you have that delicious feeling of drifting in and out of wakefulness. To reach this stage, melatonin can help reset sleep-wake cycles and should be taken within 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime to help support restful sleep. Melatonin, a natural hormone released in your body when the room darkens, helps us fall a…

100-year-old gems still apply today. Although American author, salesman and philosopher Elbert Hubbard lived over a century ago, his sage words of wisdom are just as relevant today. A recently discovered cardboard-bound book he wrote shortly before his death aboard the torpedoed Lusitania contains priceless gems of straight forward, valuable advice, such as:
Better mend one fault in yourself than a hundred in your neighbor.Before you are fit to give orders, you must be willing to take orders. The leader of the orchestra has always been a man who has played second fiddle. Talk less and listen more.One machine can do the work of 50 ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.Talk less and listen more.The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge.The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fear you will make one.It is easy to get everything you want, provided you first learn to do without the…

FOOD AS MEDICINE

(Health) Nutritionist Rachel Lustgarten, RD, prescribes incorporating these foods into your diet to quell inflammation:

Berries

Leafy greens
Like kale and spinach have vitamins K and E, which have been associated with reduced inflammation and may be protective against heart disease and arthritis.

Salmon and other oily fish
Like mackerel, tuna, and sardines contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.

Extra-virgin olive oil
A plant-based source of omega-3s and can be a good alternative to pro-inflammatory saturated fats, like butter. A compound in olive oil, oleocanthal, has been called a "natural ibuprofen" because it mimics the drug's anti-inflammatory actions in lab studies.

Garlic
Contains organo-sulfur compounds, which inhibit inflammatory proteins. …
